So sorry to learn about the passing of #LorenaBorjas. In honor of her leadership and activism, I am proud to announce that I will be renaming the street on 83rd between Roosevelt & 37th after her. My heart goes out to her family,friends,& our trans community as we mourn her loss
Lorena Borjas fought for the lives and dignity and power of trans women in Jackson Heights… undocumented people, Latinx folks, sex workers. This is who is dying. Rest in power, Lorena. Solidarity and compassion to all who love her. https://t.co/JuokCEPxe0
